by connecting the equipment with the HDMI cable. See the
operating instructions for connected equipment for operational
details.
 VIERA Link “HDAVI Control”, based on the control functions
provided by HDMI which is an industry standard known as HDMI
CEC (Consumer Electronics Control), is a unique function that
we have developed and added. As such, its operation with other
manufacturers’ equipment that supports HDMI CEC cannot be
guaranteed.
 This unit supports “HDAVI Control 2” function.
“HDAVI Control 2” is the newest standard (current as of February,

(¼ 69).
2. Set “VIERA Link” to “On” (¼ 63). (The default setting is “On”.)
3. Set the “HDAVI Control” operations on the connected equipment
(e.g., TV).
 When using HDMI2 terminal of VIERA as “HDAVI Control”,
set the input channel to HDMI2 on VIERA.
4. Turn on all “HDAVI Control” compatible equipment and select
this unit’s input channel on the connected TV so that the “HDAVI
Control” function works properly.
Also when the connection or settings are changed, repeat this
procedure.

 When you press [OK] to start copy, the tape is
automatically fast-forwarded to the end and then fastrewound to the beginning before the copying is actually
started. It may take time to start copy. If the remaining
capacity of the disc is insufficient, the copying will be

 The recording is divided into titles every time the tape
index signals are detected.
When “Time Setting” is set to “On” in step  left:

Glossary
Bitstream
Formatting
This is a signal compressed and converted into digital form. It is
converted back to a multi-channel audio signal, e.g., 5.1-channel, by a
decoder.
Formatting is the process of making media such as DVD-RAM
recordable on recording equipment.
You can format DVD-RAM, DVD-RW (only as DVD-Video format) and,
+RW or unused +R and +R DL on this unit.
Formatting irrevocably erases all contents.
CPRM (Content Protection for Recordable Media)
CPRM is technology used to protect broadcasts that are allowed to
be recorded only once. Such broadcasts can be recorded only with
CPRM-compatible recorders and discs.
Decoder
Frame and Field
Frame refers to the single images that constitute the video you see on
your TV. Each frame consists of 2 fields.
A decoder restores the coded audio signals on DVDs to normal. This is
called decoding.
W
Dolby Digital
This is a method of coding digital signals developed by Dolby
Laboratories. Apart from stereo (2-channel) audio, these signals can
also be multi-channel audio. A large amount of audio information can
be recorded on one disc using this method.
When recording on this unit Dolby Digital (2 channel) is the default
audio.
Down-mixing
This is the process of remixing the multi-channel audio found on some
discs into two channels. It is useful when you want to listen to the 5.1channel audio recorded on DVDs through your TV’s speakers. Some
discs prohibit down-mixing. If this is the case, this unit can only output
the front two channels.
Drive
In the instance of this unit, this refers to disc (DVD) and video cassette
(VHS). These perform the reading and writing of data.
Frame
T
Field
Field
 A frame still shows 2 fields, so there may be some blurring between
them, but picture quality is generally better.
 A field still shows less picture information so it may be rougher, but
there is no blurring.
HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface)
Unlike conventional connections, it transmits uncompressed digital
video and audio signals on a single cable. This unit supports highdefinition video output [720p (750p), 1080i (1125i) and 1080p (1125p)]
from HDMI AV OUT terminal. To enjoy high-definition video a high
definition compatible television is required.
JPEG (Joint Photographic Experts Group)
This surround system is used in many movie theaters. There is good
separation between the channels, so realistic sound effects are
possible.
This is a system used for compressing/decoding color still pictures. If
you select JPEG as the storage system on digital cameras, etc., the
data will be compressed to 1/10-1/100 of its original size. The benefit of
JPEG is less deterioration in picture quality considering the degree of
compression.
Dynamic range
LPCM (Linear PCM)
Dynamic range is the difference between the lowest level of sound that
can be heard above the noise of the equipment and the highest level
of sound before distortion occurs. Dynamic range compression means
reducing the gap between the loudest and softest sounds. This means
you can hear dialogue clearly at low volume.
These are uncompressed digital signals, similar to those found on CDs.
LPCM sound is available when recording in XP mode.
DTS (Digital Theater Systems)
Film and Video
DVD-Videos are recorded using either film or video. The unit can
determine which type has been used, then uses the most suitable
method of progressive output.
Film:
Recorded at 25 frames per second (PAL discs) or 24 frames
per second (NTSC discs). (NTSC discs recorded at 30
frames per second as well.)
Generally appropriate for motion picture films.
Video:
Recorded at 25 frames/50 fields per second. (PAL discs)
or 30 frames/60 fields per second (NTSC discs). Generally
appropriate for TV drama programmes or animation.
Finalise
A process that makes play of a recorded CD-R, CD-RW, DVD-R, etc.
possible on equipment that can play such media. You can finalise DVDR, DVD-R DL, DVD-RW (DVD-Video format), +R, and +R DL on the
unit. After finalising, the disc becomes play-only and you can no longer
record or edit. However, finalised DVD-RW can be formatted to become
recordable.
MPEG2 (Moving Picture Experts Group)
A standard for efficiently compressing and expanding colour video.
MPEG2 is a compression standard used for DVD and satellite based
digital broadcasting. This unit records programmes using MPEG2.
MP3 (MPEG Audio Layer 3)
An audio compression method that compresses audio to approximately
one-tenth of its size without any significant loss of audio quality. You
can play MP3s you have recorded onto DVD-R, DVD-R DL, CD-R and
CD-RW.
Pan & Scan/Letterbox
In general, DVD-Video are produced with the intention that they will be
viewed on a widescreen TV (16:9 aspect ratio), so images often don’t
fit regular TVs (4:3 aspect ratio). 2 styles of picture, “Pan & Scan” and
“Letterbox”, deal with this problem.
Pan & Scan: The sides are cut off so the picture
fills the screen.
Letterbox:
Black bands appear at the top and
bottom of the picture so the picture
itself appears in an aspect ratio of
16:9.
Playback control (PBC)
If a Video CD has playback control, you can select scenes and
information with menus.
(This unit is compatible with version 2.0 and 1.1.)

Safety Precautions
Progressive/Interlace
The PAL video signal standard has 625 (or 576) interlaced (i) scan
lines, whereas progressive scanning, called 625p (or 576p), uses
twice the number of scan lines. For the NTSC standard, these are
called 525i (or 480i) and 525p (or 480p) respectively.
Using progressive output, you can enjoy the high-resolution video
recorded on media such as DVD-Video.
Your television must be compatible to enjoy progressive video.
Panasonic televisions with 625 (576)/50i · 50p, 525 (480)/60i · 60p
input terminals are progressive compatible.
Protection
You can prevent accidental erasure by setting writing protection or
erasure protection.
RGB
This refers to the three primary colours of light, red (R), green
(G), and blue (B) and also the method of producing video that
uses them. By dividing the video signal into the three colours for
transmission, noise is reduced for even higher quality images.
Sampling frequency
Sampling is the process of converting the heights of sound wave
(analog signal) samples taken at set periods into digits (digital
encoding). Sampling frequency is the number of samples taken per
second, so larger numbers mean more faithful reproduction of the
original sound.
Placement
Set the unit up on an even surface away from direct sunlight,
high temperatures, high humidity, and excessive vibration. These
conditions can damage the cabinet and other components, thereby
shortening the unit’s service life.
Do not place heavy items on the unit.
Voltage
Do not use high voltage power sources. This can overload the
unit and cause a fire.
Do not use a DC power source. Check the source carefully when
setting the unit up on a ship or other place where DC is used.
AC mains lead protection
Ensure the AC mains lead is connected correctly and not
damaged. Poor connection and lead damage can cause fire or
electric shock. Do not pull, bend, or place heavy items on the lead.
Grasp the plug firmly when unplugging the lead. Pulling the AC
mains lead can cause electric shock.
Do not handle the plug with wet hands. This can cause electric
shock.
Signal Quality
This is the guide for checking the aerial direction. The numbered
values displayed do not indicate the strength of the signal, but
the quality of the signal (the signal to noise ratio, or “S/N”). The
channels you can receive are affected by weather conditions,
seasons, time (day/night), region, length of the cable that is
connected to the aerial, etc.
Thumbnail
This refers to a miniature representation of a picture used to
display multiple pictures in the form of a matrix.
Foreign matter
Do not let metal objects fall inside the unit. This can cause
electric shock or malfunction.
Do not let liquids get into the unit. This can cause electric shock
or malfunction. If this occurs, immediately disconnect the unit from
the AC mains supply and contact your dealer.
Do not spray insecticides onto or into the unit. They contain
flammable gases which can ignite if sprayed into the unit.
1080i
In one high-definition image, 1080 (1125) alternating scan lines
pass every 1/50th of a second to create an interlace image.
Because 1080i (1125i) more than doubles current television
broadcasts of 480i (525i), the detail is much clearer and creates a
more realistic and rich image.
1080p
In one high-definition image, 1080 (1125) scan lines pass at the
same time every 1/50th of a second to create a progressive image.
Since progressive video does not alternate scan lines like interlace,
there is a minimal amount of screen flicker.
720p
Do not attempt to repair this unit by yourself. If sound is
interrupted, indicators fail to light, smoke appears, or any other
problem that is not covered in these instructions occurs, disconnect
the AC mains lead and contact your dealer or an authorized
service centre. Electric shock or damage to the unit can occur if
the unit is repaired, disassembled or reconstructed by unqualified
persons.
Extend operating life by disconnecting the unit from the AC mains
if it is not to be used for a long time.
Reference
In one high-definition image, 720 (750) scan lines pass at the same
time every 1/50th of a second to create a progressive image. Since
progressive video does not alternate scan lines like interlace, there
is a minimal amount of screen flicker.
